A Pittsburgh Intellectual Property Hall of Fame: Trademarks

Included: marks, meaning signs, slogans, and symbols that are source-identifying in a trademark law sense. Many of these are registered marks, but not all of them.

Not included: Just about anything can be a mark, under contemporary trademark law. So almost anything goes.
